Knowing that Chris starved to death, each person developes different compulsions around food. Carine eats "every scrap of food the cabin attendants set in front of her." Later on she finds food sickening and looses an unhealthy amount of weight. Many of her friends think she is anorexic. Chris's mother looses eight pounds and his father gains eight pounds. Each family members compulsive food actions become a manifestation of the pain they feel for Chris and what he went through in his final days.
